Happy Easter From Canada!


Hello OCS Fans!

It’s Wednesday, and today I’m sharing an Easter card that I made for some very young cousins in the USA using High Hopes Rubber Stamps.

On the front of the card, I used Carrot Patch (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) as my main image. Then printed out the sentiment in Microsoft Word using Georgia Font – Bold, Italic, PS 36. After stamping and colouring the image, I used Inkadoo Stamping Mask Paper and stamped the image again. Then I fussy cut around the mask and placed it over the image to do my clouds using the cloud stencils that I made from Avery Elle – Custom Steel Dies – Made in the USA – D-05-01 PiercedCloudsDie and Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean ink.

Here is a close-up of the Easter Bunny!

On the inside of the card, Peeking Spring Buddies (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) and Canadian Easter Greetings (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment.

All images were stamped onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using Memento – Tuxedo Black ink and my MISTI (Most Incredible Stamping Tool) and then coloured in with Copic Markers.

Dragon – Sick Day


Welcome OCS Fans!

It’s Wednesday, and so I’m happy to be posting this adorable little dragon to help put a smile on your face! I decided to make an Easel Card this week. The dragon I am using is called “Seymore’s Sick Day” by High Hopes Rubber Stamps. It was stamped onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and then coloured in with Copic Markers. I then, fussy cut around the entire image.

To do the background behind the dragon, I cut out some Bristol Paper using my Cuttlebug and Lawn Fawn – Zig Zag Rectangle Stackables. Then used Spectrum Noir Aqua Markers to create the ground and shadow beneath the dragon. The clouds were done using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean and I had created a stencil from Avery Elle – Custom Steel Dies – Pierced Clouds Die. Finally, I ran my little dragon through the Xyron machine and layered it on top of the background that I had created.

Close up of the Dragon:

For the sentiment I used Tail Not Waggin / Get Well Soon” by High Hopes Rubber Stamps. I stamped the sentiment using VersaFine – Onyx Black and then embossed with Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail Embossing Powder.

 

I completed card by using the Zig Zag dies again to cut out  a border around the coloured image and sentiment. Sentiment was popped up with some pop-up squares. Around the background papers, frames and sentiment I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Wilted Violet.

Background Paper, Recollections – Petite Floral – 12 x 12″ (30.4 x 30.4 cm) and some flowers from my collection were then used to complete the card.

To make the Easel Card I just took a 5.5″ x 12″ piece of white cardstock and then scored at 6″ and then on one of the 6″ portions at 3″. This allows the card to lay flat when mailing.

Dragon – Pull My Finger Slider Card


Hi There!

I made this fun card using the High Hopes Rubber Stamps – S222 – Dragon Finger a while back, but never got around to posting it. LOL! So here it is now.

As soon as I saw this stamp set I knew that I had to have it to make my dad a card with. When we were little, he would always tell us to pull his finger and then he would toot!!!! LOL! He would then laugh at our disgusted looks. But it always brings back fond memories. He’s older now and still hasn’t changed. LOL! I think that’s why we love him so much. Our dad has always had a great sense of humour.

I used the stamps to create a slider card. On the front center panel I used the dragon the first sentiment from the same stamp set.

 

Here is a close-up:

On the right panel, I used the sentiment from the stamp set “Pull My Finger”

On the left panel, is the result of the question and answer from the first 2 panels. Just look at the big grin on his face. Just like my dad’s.

Here is a close-up:

 

Put all 3 panels together and this is what it looks like when you pull it in both directions.

 

My dad loved his card and I hope that you do too!

Wedding Card for Cousin 2017


Sharing the card I made for my younger cousin who just got married. It was a beautiful wedding and everyone had a lot of fun.

It was great to see all of the family and meet a lot of my cousins that I haven’t seen in years and to see all of their children too!

For their wedding card, I wanted it to be special, so I thought a Snow Globe would be something unique for them to have. I just wish that I had used a little more glitter for the snow.

I started off making my card by stamping the images onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using Memento – Tuxedo Black ink.

Used Copic markers to colour in the image and then I fussy cut around them to add them to the background. I stamped the top of the wedding dress and part of the veil again using glitter paper and added it to the image as well.

For the background I first cut out the circle from Strathmore Bristol Paper – Vellum Surface – 100 lb. using my dies listed below and then used Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean for the sky and clouds and Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Mowed Lawn for the grass. Stamped sentiment using Versa Fine – Onyx Black and Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder.

Here is what the image looked like before I created the snow globe.

This is a close up of how it looked inside the globe with the glitter added to it.

Here is the finished card. I’ve added 2 images as my camera didn’t take a very good shot the first time. It’s a little dark in the first image.

Stamp and Sentiment – Peachy Keen Stamps – Matt and Janice Wilson – PK-1360, PKSC-27 March 2014

Die Cut – Marianne Design Collectables – Col1362 – Snow Globe

Happy Father’s Day to all of the dads out there today!

Sharing a card that I made for my dad who LIVES to fish! Saw these characters on the Marjorieanne site and just knew that I had to have them.

It reminded me of when I used to go fishing with my dad when I was younger.

Used Cricut Explore and and file “fishingwithdad_marjorieanndesigns039887” .svg cutting files for characters, scene and fish, on the front and inside of the card. Inked around all edges with various Tim Holtz Distress Ink colours and used Xyron Create-a-sticker to aid in putting all of the little pieces together.

Created clouds and background water with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean and Avery Elle – Custom Steel Dies – Made in the USA – D-05-01 PiercedCloudsDie.

Background paper – Gone Fishing PA-0909 – American Traditions Designs.
